About the Artist

I am a Fellow of The Society of Designer Craftsmen, The Sussex Guild of Designers and
Makers, and the Embroiderers’ Guild.

I am qualified with a B.Ed.Hons Degree and a Diploma in Creative Embroidery and exhibit and sell my work at Exhibitions and Shows nationwide. Specialising in Freehand Machine Embroidery and related creative stitching techniques, I offer a range of courses, lectures and workshops.

A range of workshops are available online via Zoom

I am a tour leader for Textile and Cultural Holidays in India with AahilyaHolidays

I welcome commissions both large and small.

Living close to the South Downs, the landscape provides a constant source of inspiration for my
stitched textile designs.  My theme,
A Sense of Placerecords memorable journeys and locations,
using fabric, stitch and texture. Architectural structures, textures, and patterns also provide a
wealth of ideas which I enjoy exploring.

I record my ideas with sketch, torn paper collage and my camera is always on hand.
